Artur J. Moro took his Diploma (equivalent to M.Sc.) in Applied Chemistry from NOVA University of Lisbon in 2006. He then joined the Friedrich-Schiller University of Jena to pursue his Ph. D. studies as a Marie-Curie Fellow (NASCENT Project, RTN-FP6), under the supervision of Dr. Gerhard J. Mohr. His dissertation focused on the design and synthesis of fluorescent sensor nanoparticles for small molecules. After successfully obtaining his degree, he returned to NOVA University with a Post-Doctoral Individual fellowship from FCT-MCTES, joining the Photochemistry and Supramolecular group from LAQV, where has been building on his career in the development of fluorescent sensors and actuators.

Áreas de Investigação

His current research interests are:

- Fluorescent chemosensors for metal ions and anions

- Photochemistry of flavylium-based systems

- FarRed emitting probes

- Photophysics of organometallic complexes

- Luminescent sensor nanoparticles
